The Secretary of State to the Chargé in Mexico (Summerlin)

39. Amembassy Paris telegraphs March 22d, 4 P.M., as follows:

“Foreign Office informs me that information is incorrect and that no recognition has been given to Obregon. Foreign Office adds that the rumor might have arisen from the fact that President Millerand replied to Obregon’s letter regarding his accession to office, but that this matter had been taken up by Mr. Jusserand with the Department which had seen no objection to the fact or the nature of the reply.”
